Tuesday, October 30: The deets have just been announced about this fundraiser for Methodist Health System Foundation. Event chair Fred Hegi revealed that the 2012 Methodist Health System Foundation Robert S. Folsom Leadership Award will be presented to Mike Boone at a dinner at the Hilton Anatole.
While many know Mike as the co-founder of Haynes and Boone, there are still many more who recognize him from his leadership and countless contributions in improving the education system. For his years of work, he has been recognized time and time again with countless accolades.
The award is presented to individuals who have “demonstrated commitment and excellence in community leadership [emulating] the achievements of former Dallas mayor Robert S. Folsom.”
Mike will be joining the ranks of Trevor Rees-Jones (2011), Pat and Emmitt Smith (2010), the late Norman Brinker (2009), former first lady Laura Bush (2008), Troy Aikman (2007), Nancy Ann Hunt (2006) and the award’s namesake Robert S. Folsom (2005).
Having raised more that $7 million since 2005, this year’s proceeds will go to the new Neuro Critical Care Unit at Methodist Dallas Medical Center.
For those who join the 2012 Folsom Leadership Circle ($10K), they’ll be treated to a patron party at Jan and Trevor Rees-Jones‘ home.
Hey, Mike, when it comes to picking out dessert for the dinner, check with Trevor. He picked a winner last year.
